This year sees the Codemasters Birmingham Studio celebrate 10 years of F1 gaming creations, and to celebrate they’ve announced plans to run F1 2019 with both a Legends and Anniversary Edition, throwing out the chance to renew the Senna and Prost rivalry, alongside the opportunity to race in some of the most iconic cars from recent history.

Announced today by Codemasters and Koch Media are the F1 2019 Legends Edition and the F1 2019 Anniversary Edition, with both coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. And if you’re a fan of F1, you may not be able to resist what they include.

So, first up is the F1 2019 Legends Edition and this will see you given the opportunity to drive as Ayrton Senna in his 1990 McLaren MP4/5B and Alain Prost in the Ferrari F1-90, as they race across eight race challenges. Further to this, you’ll also get access to exclusive Senna and Prost themed multiplayer car liveries, whilst the drivers’ likenesses have also been added to the Career mode – something which will be playable 3 days earlier than the standard June 25th 2019 release date,

Additionally though, and in order to celebrate the tenth F1 game from the Codemasters Birmingham Studio, those who pre-order or purchase the F1 2019 Anniversary Edition will receive two race-winning cars from the classic 2010 season; the Ferrari F10, as driven by Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, and Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button’s McLaren MP4-25. Alternatively, the two cars will be available to purchase together at a later date, and will be included in the Legends Edition too.

Both are in addition to Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s 2010 Red Bull RB6 and many of the classic cars from F1 2018 which have been retained.

Building on that rivalry theme and the cover art for F1 2019 will receive a fresh new look focusing on the fierce competition which has been developing over recent seasons. This will see the current World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, and main antagonist Sebastian Vettel gracing the cover with many major territories releasing their own version reflecting the biggest and best adversaries in their local market.

But that’s not all the F1 news and after having teased a car in the announcement trailer, the FIA Formula 2 Championship is officially confirmed too, with the full 2018 season available from launch, and the F2TM 2019 season being digitally added later in the year. This will come complete with online functionality as players get to compete alongside George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon before they progressed into the current F1 season with their respective teams.

“Fans can see from the new cover art design that F1® 2019 has a strong theme of rivalry running through it, just like the main sport itself. As such, we are absolutely delighted to have resurrected F1®’s greatest ever rivalry between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost,” said Paul Jeal, F1® Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Their rivalry began right back in the 1984 season and reached one of the most dramatic ever climaxes on the first lap of the Japanese Grand Prix during the 1990 season. It’s a rivalry which has transcended way beyond the sport and is regarded as the greatest of all time by F1® fans. We know our community will love that the two legends of the sport have finally been immortalised together in our game. We’re also extremely excited to be bringing the FIA Formula 2 Championship to the franchise. It’s consistently been one of the most requested features from our community and it comes at a perfect time with the top three drivers from 2018 in George Russell, Lando Norris and Alexander Albon progressing to F1® for this season. We can’t wait to unveil more details on how this is integrated into the career mode in the coming weeks.”
